An Irishman Abroad

Niall Tubridy: Episode 293

April 27, 2019

Jarlath recently met with Neurologist Niall Tubridy in the offices of Penguin Publishing in Dublin to speak about his fascinating career and his new book Just One More Question: Stories from a Life in Neurology.

Niall speaks about how he remains connected to his patients in a job which sees him deliver both wonderful and earth shattering news on a daily basis (14:00), while also offering his thoughts on whether traditional medicine is limited (33:00) and telling the incredible story of a chef with transient global amnesia (Patreon Extended Cut Only).

From why he believes the NHS is no better than the Irish Health Service (53:00) to why a level of arrogance is associated with medical professionals (41:00) and much more, this conversations offers a truly rare insight into the world of one of the most important areas of medicine.
